**Answer**

- 2002

Explanation: successor of 2001 is 2002 as

- 2002
- 1

Explanation: 1 is a natural number has no predecessor as 1 -1 =0 which is not a natural number

- 1
- 0

Explanation: smallest whole number is zero as whole number is a collecion od zero and all natural numbers. and all natural numbers are gretare than zero.

- 0
- 123 $\times $ 8 + 3 = 987

Explanation: 1 $\times $ 8 + 1 = 9

12 $\times $ 8 + 2 = 98

123 $\times $8 + 3 = 987

As the digit of the 1st number incresing gradually like 1, 12, 123 and the last digit of equation is also increasing like 1, 2, 3 so next pattern will be 123 $\times $8 + 3 = 987

And the sum is also in decreasing order like 9 ,98 , 987

So the next pattern is 123 $\times $8 + 3 = 987

- 123 $\times $ 8 + 3 = 987
- >

Explanation: 460 ____>___406 as

- >
- – c
- – a
- – d
- – b

- 0
- zero
- 1
- 1000

- True
- False, every whole number except 0 is a natural number.
- False, the predecessor of 10 is 9.
- True

- There are 20 whole numbers between 32 and 53. These are 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51 and 52.
- No, all whole numbers are not natural numbers. (0 is a whole number but not a natural number.)
- 12321
- The next three consecutive whole numbers of 39359 are: 39360, 39361, 39362
- The next three consecutive whole numbers of 8632157 are: 8632158, 8632159, 8632160

- Petrol filled on Monday = 40 litres.

Petrol filled the next day = 50 litres.

∴ Total petrol filled on the two days = 40 litres + 50 litres = 90 litres.

∴ Cost of petrol per litre = Rs.44

∴ Cost of 90 litres petrol = Rs.44 × 90 = Rs.3960. - 8 × 391 × 125 = 391× (125 × 8)

= 391 × 1000

= 391,000 - 2 × 1234 × 50 =1234 × (2 × 50)

= 1234 × 100

= 123,400

- 8 × 391 × 125 = 391× (125 × 8)
- Breakfast consisting of 150 calories.

Lunch consisting of 350 calories.

Dinner consisting of 1000 calories.

The sum of the calories consumed that day is 150 + 350 + 1000 = 1500 calories.
